The Malone Stax Pro 2 is an economical and solid option for transporting two kayaks using after-market or factory load bars. Strong octagon shaped posts, easy no tools assembly and total rust resistance mean years of service from this carrier. The two posts fold down for better aerodynamics and low clearance when not in use. Comes with all hardware, straps, safety tie-downs and blocks to carry two kayaks.

I think the Malone Stax Pro 2 is great rack for hauling two kayaks and I would said you should buy one.
the brackets are for universal for round or square cross bracing really dont work that well on round cross bars. You get use to it
This was an accessory purchase we made to take advantage of the ACK 15% off with purchase of a kayak. We have a factory roof rack with crossrails and specs that can easily handle the weight of our two kayaks (one 10' and one 12' sit-on-top). The Malone Stax Pro 2 was a perfect solution for our needs. The kit includes all the straps needed and bow and stern tie-downs for two boats. with big, hand-tightened screws, no tools are needed. It is so easy to install/remove that I remove the upright bars from the rack when we are on the water to avoid theft. I have had two properly secured kayaks at sustained highway speeds on several trips now with no boat movement. My only complaint is that I wish the universal foam blocks were a little wider to better fit our (oddly) wide Hyundai Santa fe crossrails. I have to stretch the block very wide to slip on the rails and I'm afraid I will tear them while installing/removing.
This product is very sturdy, the stax pro 2 should hold up well for years, also price is right for this item.
